Is this the future of creativity? AKQA and Google team up to create machine learning art

Technology is infiltrating the creative sector in a big way. How will it change the processes of artwork, and how can creativity be taught to machines? It’s these questions AKQA and Google set out to answer with the creation of Somesthetic Transfer, an AI machine that takes the texture of pre-existing artwork, digitises it and applies it to another artistic project in a way a human wouldn’t have visualised it. AKQA executive R&D director Tim Devine has a chat about what this means for the future of art.
